It has a lot of HTML documentation. However, the GUI is easy to use, I
never needed to look into the documentation.

I don't know about "x509 style guide", I'll look into it.

Yes, the last upstream version is from 2007. But the author is working
on 0.7, the last commit in the git repisitory[1] is from March 3rd.  I
also know the author in person.

My packaging is already finished and lintian-clean, and I have a
sponsor, too.  I'm waiting for the author to include 2 small patches
and release a 0.7 version
